Scholarships

Congratulations to our 2018 Scholarship recipients, Hillary Oldford and Tori Burt!

Hillary is a recent graduate of Holy Spirit High School in Conception Bay South. In addition to excelling academically, she has completed both the bronze and silver levels of the Duke of Edinburgh Award while actively volunteering her time and talents at her church. Teaching Sunday School, dance, leading the choir with music and working with the children as a worship leader are all examples of how she has given back to the community in which she lives. One of Hillary’s references probably said it best: ‘Hillary is a fantastic representative of our school and community. She has an amazing work ethic, is enthusiastic, confident, determined, kind, and has true leadership qualities’. Well done, Hillary!

Hillary is the granddaughter of EasternEdge Credit Union members, L. Woodrow (Woody) and Betty Oldford.

Graduating from Leo Burke Academy in Bishop’s Falls, Tori Burt has also proven to be a stellar student.  She has been the recipient of numerous awards including Youth of the Year for 2017, a first place academic, plus the Alice Butler Spirit Award. She coached the Junior Girls Volleyball Team, was assistant to the athletes for the Special Olympics, and was the youth representative on the Bishop’s Falls Town Council.  As one of her references pointed out, ‘Tori is a positive role model and can be seen at many community events’. ‘She is a team player and is always one to encourage and support others’. With qualities and credentials such as these, Tori is an excellent choice as a 2018 Scholarship recipient.  Great job, Tori!

Tori is the daughter of EasternEdge Credit Union member, Lorenzo Burt.
